Renee says: “Without a doubt, one of my all time favourite Antique button pendants, and that’s really saying something! I found this amazing 1800’s era brass button in an little curio shop in Paris, and knew it would make a delightful piece. The detail of a basket with flowers and hat is remarkable, a true testament of the artisans who created these buttons many years ago. I “Colour Washed” the button in rich shades of fushia, pumpkin and deep aqua green, then burnished for an old world patina. This piece looks great worn on a silver chain, cuff, leather cord or pearls for versatility. Antique button pendants…treasures from a bygone era to cherish today. Scroll thru’ images for up close peek at a most fabulous piece you will cherish & wear for years to come.”

Does not include chain as shown in photos.

Antique Picture Buttons:
Making their appearance in the mid 1800’s era, Picture Buttons became fashionable by the late 1870’s and were made until about the 1920’s. Most were manufactured in Europe by master craftsmen and are remarkably beautiful and well made. A Picture Button is metal, sometimes a combination of metals such as steel, silver, copper or brass. Many of these buttons have been given names, either when they were originally made or later as to identify them for collectors. Many Picture Buttons feature designs that depict fables, myths, operas, scenes or popular items of the era. Picture Buttons are true miniature treasures from a bygone era.

Rave Review:

Renee Blackwell, I ordered a pendant for my wife’s 40th birthday, and to say she was delighted is an understatement. She has a few of your pieces and has enjoyed wearing them over the years, so I was pretty sure she would like another piece. Your designs are true works of art. Thanks, Larry-Perth, Australia
